Well, packet 3 came and now I'm stressed to the max. I know I've posted this concern of mine before, but,I also know I didn't explain properly what information I was needing. I now know that the poverty guidelines are for gross income, thanks to answers to a previous post. However, this is where I get confused. My fiance is temporarily on disability, at least for a few more months, and more than likely will not be employed by my interview date yet. (He had an organ transplant in June). He does not have to file income tax for last year, being on disability. But he does have what is called an award letter from disability stating the amount he will be getting, which I understand should be acceptable. When a sponsor that has employment has an income of ...lets say $14,000.00 for themselves and a beneficiary, that amount is above the poverty levels (for 2006) and probably accepted for the I-134. But there are taxes taken off that amount. My fiancee's monthly income is not taxable, and is slightly higher than the poverty guidelines...and is therefore more income than someone making the $14,000.00 gross. Him getting a co-sponsor would be very difficult, and so I'm wondering if any of you feel with the above explanation he will need one? thank you.

My feeling is that you might be OK for the K1 interview (does he have any assets to supplement the sponsorship?) But for the AOS you may be in trouble and will need a co-sponsor - they are more strict for AOS from what I have read on this forum. You might be better off looking into a co-sponsor right now and be prepared if they don't accept his I134 for K1. Good luck
